A corpus linguistic analysis of 50 years of Bob Dylan lyrics

A corpus linguistic analysis of 50 years of Bob Dylan lyrics | Language and Thought | Scoop.it

"Α corpus analysis of Bob Dylan’s lyrics would be interesting because as well as being regarded as one of the most acclaimed and influential songwriters in recent American history, Dylan has been writing songs and releasing albums for more than 50 years. His continued productivity and influence on popular music is celebrated within arenas of light literary scholarship, biographical documentation and also in hardcore academic research (Dunlap, 2006; Gearey, 1988; Shelton, 2011). Even historical scholars, cultural sociologists and literary commentators (Marshall, 2003; Wilentz, 2011; Rogovoy, 2009) continue to adulate the immense impact of his songs on 20th and 21st century culture. Such commentators are careful not to restrict their dissection and admiration of his music and lyrics to the so-called “1960s golden period” of Dylan’s creative successes. Whissell (2008: 469), in her research paper which explores the emotional content of Dylan’s lyrics, notes that we should all be aware that “his career is still in progress and his is not to be regarded only in the past tense”. Whether you’re a huge fan or not, I think this comment succinctly summarizes the consensus among scholars, critics and fans alike that Dylan has sustained his creative and expressive panache for writing moving and emotive poetry throughout his life".

Not strictly visualization... BUT very fascinating!
Mabel A. Opare - Ababio Ayita's comment, May 29, 2013 8:29 AM
Yes but it's really possible and fascinating indeed.
REMI BLUM-JONQUIERES's comment, May 29, 2013 11:04 AM
I believe that we can think using kind of emotions and visualizations. Maybe it is a universal communication like we can have in dreams
